It was a hectic sprint today and, at one point, Tyler Farrar's leadout train seemed confused as Murilo Fischer was about 5 bike lengths in front of the peleton. Unfortunately, the unorthodox tactics didn't work out for Garmin-Barracuda as well as they did for Sky, whose Edvald Boasson Hagen took a convincing win.

Your Top Six:

  1. Edvald Boasson Hagen (Sky)
  2. Andre Greipel (Lotto Belisol)
  3. Peter Sagan (Liquigas-Cannondale)
  4. Tyler Farrar (Garmin-Barracuda)
  5. Manuel Belletti (AG2R La Mondiale
  6. Matthew Goss (Green Edge)

Up next? 252 kilometers of climby awesomeness, including a short but sharp finishing climb with an average gradient of 12%. If that doesn't sound unpleasant enough, it has a maximum gradient of 18%. Bring your climber legs, dudes, cause this is gonna hurt!
